ClickView 6.2: Delivering ‘classroom-ready’ TV recordings to schools

This term, a big talking point concerning video in the classroom has been around delivering ‘classroom-ready’ TV recordings to teachers and students. TV is full of educationally-valuable content for your classroom. Whether it be a documentary, news story, or feature film, at ClickView we want to assist teachers in finding educational TV programmes and adding ‘classroom-ready’ TV recordings into their lesson plans.

Our recent focus has, therefore, been on how to enhance the ClickView product with features that will give teachers the best experience with our TV recording service, ClickView TV.

Find ad-free, classroom-ready TV recordings

Starting this year, schools can request ad-free TV recordings via ClickView 24-7. The ClickView Curation Team have been carefully removing the adverts from requested TV programmes for your staff, and educators all over the country. After removing the adverts, we then send you a copy of the programme to your Workspace. This has been a very popular service, with our Curators completing hundreds of requests from schools each week!

After the ClickView Curation Team have removed the adverts from a programme, the classroom-ready recording is also uploaded to ClickView for other teachers to share and use in their classroom. To ensure you quickly find these advert-free recordings, we have placed a red ‘ad-free’ badge on each programme:

ClickView 24-7 ad-free videos

Please note that there is a limit on the number of requests you can send the ClickView Curators. Each user can request up to 5 new ad-free programmes per day. However, for any programme that has previously been requested by other users (with a red ‘ad-free’ badge), you can of course add as many of those to your Workspace as you like!
